I've been looking to step up from Gitane 500D, and recently found a DJ Hodson 503A locally which is looking like an interesting option.
I personally like the tone and action. However I thought I should ask here because I don't have enough experience w/ petite bouche guitars to make a good comparison. So far I only played Asian made oval holes (quite a few different Gitane models and a Latcho Drom), and pretty much have no bearing on what to look for in hand made guitars.
I did find some info on the net: It turns out the late British luthier made 2 similar models: 503R and 503A, the second one being a budget model. I'm particularly interested in hearing about tonal differences b/w the two.
Any opinions on the guitar very welcome.
